Chinese Numbers 1-100

Learn to count using Chinese numbers 1-100. Counting in Chinese is a delightfully simple task. Learning to count to 100 actually only requires you to learn 11 numbers! That’s because you only need to know the number 1-10 and the word for “hundred.” Actually after you learn those 11 words, you can count to 999 and if you learn one more word you’ll be able to count to 9999! Let me explain.

First let’s start with the numbers 1-10 in Chinese:

  1. 一 Yī
  2. 二 Èr
  3. 三 Sān
  4. 四 Sì
  5. 五 Wǔ
  6. 六 Liù
  7. 七 Qī
  8. 八 Bā
  9. 九 Jiǔ
  10. 十 Shí

Simple enough, right? You can check out a video on counting to 10 if you need help on the pronunciation.
You’re going to love the number 11 in Chinese:

十一 Shí yī

That’s right, you just say “ten one.” Twelve is just “ten two,” or 十二 (Shí èr).
The pattern continues. And once you get to twenty:

二十 Èr shí

That’s right, you just say “two ten” And 21:

二十一 Èr shí yī

It’s like “Two ten one” and that pattern continues. Two ten two, two ten three, etc. So forty five would just be “four ten five.”

四十五 Sì shí wǔ

Try counting all the way to ninety-nine! Once you get there you need to know just one more character and you can say 100:

一百 Yì bǎi

How cool is that? Congratulations on learning how to count to 100 in Chinese. You are a Chinese learning superstar! Quick test: How would you say 276 (hint: two – hundred – seven – ten – six). You can now count to 999! Wow, that was fast. You know how to say almost one thousand words in Chinese! If you’re ready to practice more Chinese, try some of our beginner Chinese reading practice.
